Edgar Allan Poe wrote of his relationship with the Christian Goddess in 19th Century Baltimore, Mary-land.
At morn, at noon, at twilight dim
Lady thou hast heard my hymn:
In joy and woe, in good and ill,
Goddess, Mother, be with me still.
When the hours flew brightly by
And not a cloud obscured the sky,
My soul lest it should truant be,
Thy grace did guide to thine and thee.
Now, when storms of fate o'ercast
Darken my present and my past,
Let my future radiant shine
With sweet hope of thee and thine.
Teach me, Lord Satan, the knowledge of the ages
Guide me in thy wisdom
Let me feel thy presence and experience what you have for me
Dont let me be bound by irrefutable doctrines
But lead me to true freedom
Give me the strength to leave my comfort zone
To explore that which is forbidden by those who believe they are wise
Take away the fear that binds me
Set me on my true path
But if you dont think I am ready, let it be as a sunrise
Allow me to see your light as well as your darkness
The fullness of who you are
Satan, Melek Taus, Lucifer, Azazel
If I could have anything, it would be to know your truth
To believe in what is real
Not in someone elses insanity
So as I walk down this narrow road
Dont let me be discouraged
As it is you who have placed me upon it
Honor thy Earthly Mother, that thy days may be long upon the land, and honor thy Heavenly Father, that eternal life be thine in the heavens, for
the earth and the heavens are given unto thee by the Law, which is thy God.
Thou shalt greet thy Earthly Mother on the morning of the Sabbath.
Thou shalt greet the Angel of Earth on the second morning.
Thou shalt greet the Angel of Life on the third morning.
Thou shalt greet the Angel of Joy on the fourth morning.
Thou shalt greet the Angel of Sun on the fifth morning.
Thou shalt greet the Angel of Water on the sixth morning,
Thou shalt greet the Angel of Air on the seventh morning-
All these Angels of the Earthly Mother shalt thou greet, and consecrate thyself to them, that thou mayest enter the Infinite Garden where stands the
Tree of Life.
It's a version of a song that's found in the first Shrek movie.
Here is something that might help. The comparative fields (comparative religion, comparative mythology, comparative mysticism) can give the kind of
guidance that your friendly neighborhood theologian just can't give.
Kripal is a brilliant author. Some other names you might want to read are Joseph Campbell, Karen Armstrong, Huston Smith.

How can I trust anything sourced from "The Bible?"
When God says "Let us make man in our own image," is he speaking to another entity, or is he using the "Royal us," which would make sense since
the bible was translated by monarch-fetishists of the middle ages who would naturally consider God to be one of their own. A "First Among Equals" if
And why must everything spiritual have a gender? I myself am genderless, does that mean there is nothing spiritual in me?
Will the sacred feminine ever become a part of "mainstream" "Christianity?"
Discernment, thy name is Etymology. True?
I have no guide, nor teacher, nor church, but the voice in my heart which tells me to always act ethically and with empathy, even when I don't feel
like doing the former and the latter is unnatural to me, like speaking in tongues. I know God, I just don't know anybody who I know knows God the
same way I do.
Inanna (sumerian name), Astarte (kanaanäic name), Arinna (hethitic sun goddess), Tanit (karthargic name) . Babylonian scriptures
called her the "Light of the World", the Light-bringer, Leader of Hosts, Opener of the Womb, Righteous Judge, Lawgiver, Goddess of Goddesses, Bestower
of Strength, Framer of All decress, Lady of Victory, Forgiver of Sins, Torch of Heaven and Earth.
Many are her sacred titles - "Exalted Light of Heaven", "She Who Begets All", "Guardian of the Law" and "Shepherdess of the Lands" source
Now lets see what your Inanna, also known as Tanit, demanded from her followers
Tanit was then seen as demanding child sacrifice
The cemetery at Carthage was in use from around 700 BCE to 146 BCE. It contained over 20,000 urns holding the cremated bones of young humans and
animals, 80% of which were fetuses or neonates (Aubet 2001: 251-252; Schwartz 1993:49). The accepted scholarship agrees with the excavators that the
bones are the result of thousands of sacrifices, especially since the inscriptions were mostly votive; that is, they indicated that the depositors
owed the deities a return for a favor. source
I didn't realise that new 'enlightenment' and liberal politically correct thinking thought murdering your own child for your own advancement was a
good thing to do.
Chaldean: Sumerian, INANNA (Gdss. Chald.)...There thus was performed, probably at each New Year, a marriage between the king and the priestess of
Inanna's temple of Erech. Babylonian, ISHTAR (Hooke)...Their most important function was to serve as prostitutes at the great seasonal festivals...In
the temple of Ishtar, they were called Joy-maidens...In some places these priestesses had sexual congress only with the man who impersonated the moon
god..But more often (the hieros gamos, holy marriage) could take place with any male worshiper or initiate who sought for union with the
goddess...From then on her priestesses were to celebrate yearly on his (i.e. Tammuz's) behalf the ceremonies prescribed by the deities of the Lower
World. Fellowship of Isis, page 3 and 4
The priests in the temple of Isis would rape girls in the name of their 'goddess'. How very 'enlightened'
BlueMule like to integrate the masculine and feminine to achieve some kind of completeness of enlightenment
Let's see an insider initiate, who actually knew what they are talking about, tell you about the completed figure.
It is through this weakness that the perfected man, the Sun, is of dual nature, and his evil twin slays him in his glory. So the triumphant Lord
of Heaven, the beloved of Apollo and the Muses is brought down into the dust, and who shall mourn him but his Mother Nature, Venus, the lady of love
and sorrow? Well is it if she bears within her the Secret of Resurrection!...She is Isis and Mary, Istar and Bhavani, Artemis and Diana. source: p.
635, chapter 67 Confessions by Aleister Crowley)
Here we have Aliester Crowley saying how the perfected man (in this instance Satan, who we will later see) contains is integrated and worshipped under
masculine titles and names (Lord of Heaven/Apollo) and feminine titles and names (Mother Nature/Venus/Isis/Mary/Ishtar ect)
Crowley also mentions that he was defeated (slain) by arch angle Michael (aka Jesus) and throw out of Heaven and onto the Earth (dust) but that is
Let's get to some more Crowley quotes to unravel the puzzle...
This serpent, Satan, is not the enemy of man... He is 'The Devil' of the (Egyptian) Book of Thoth, and his emblem is 'Baphomet,' the Androgyne who
is the hieroglyph of arcane perfection...But moreover his letter is Ayin, the Eye; he is Light and his zodiacal image is Capricornus, that leaping
goat whose attribute is liberty." (Magick in Theory and Practice' by Aleister Crowley)
Crowley, says that Satan's symbol is Baphomet the androgyne
androgen: one that is neither distinctly male or female...containing biological inter-sex physicality.
Does any one doubt Crowley meant his perfected man to refer to Satan
"Satan! Cry Aloud! Though Exalted Most High! Oh Me Father Satan! The Eye!" (Aleister Crowley, Magnum Opus, Book Four)
Now let quickly address some of the title that Inanna gives herself 'Light-bringer'
Lucifer, the Light-Bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the
light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual or selfish Souls? Doubt it not!"
Albert Pike, Morals and Dogmas p.321 - source book of Scottish Right Freemason doctrine
If people want to actually learn about the history of the creation of the original 'goddess', Semiramis and the real story behind Tammuz, the one who
Inanna and the like honour then I suggest being 'enlightened' with these two short videos
Part 5 - Semiramis (3:26 mins)
Part 9 - The Birth of Tammuz & Polytheism (7:35 mins)
P.S Mary the mother of Jesus and Mary Magdalene are not Holy....both are dead, sleeping in Christ awaiting the resurrection of the saved when Jesus
returns. Praying to these humans will only reach the ears of the fallen angels of Lucifer who are all to happy to impersonate dead people as this
ex-satanist will attest.
BlueMule, a 'Christian' who advocates people pray to most 'goddesses' you suggest is seeking council with Satan, this is not 'enlightened'....I hope
I can rightfully call it innocently deceived and not something more planned

So is God a male? Are all feminine aspects demonic?
You do know that human and child sacrifice wasn't limited to female deities? Yahweh himself demanded the killing of babies. And then there's
The Hebrews living in Canaan were therefore under Egyptian rule. It is also here in Canaan that we can make a comparison between Yahweh and the
Canaanite Moloch (Baal) and extrapolate a polemic inversion of the story of Pharaoh ordering the death of all the "first born" in Exodus.
The worshippers of Moloch sacrificed their first born children to their deity through immolation. Worshippers of Yahweh in Canaan were also known to
carry out child sacrifice on occasion, especially in times of hardship, although immolation (holocaust) was supposedly frowned upon. Slitting the
child's throat, however, was acceptable. www.rumormillnews.com...
